OSMS Clowning Class
This class is designed to teach the younger generations the importance of giving to and serving the community, by developing skillsets designed to create smiles through Ballooning & Face Painting. We provide the students, upon graduation day, with colored wigs of their choice and red ball noses before suiting up as Clowns and putting on a show at the local Senior Center, painting welcoming faces and giving out desired balloon animals to their audience.

OS Chili Fest
This annual event saw 3,000 people last year. We made 20 gallons of chili and still ran out 15 minutes early. There’s a panel of 3-5 Judges, and also a Public Popular Vote. First Place Winner gets $10,000 to donate to the Charity of their choice. This event is usually from 12:00 noon to 3:00 pm – our booth will be located Marsina’s on Main Street, Old Saybrook. Hope to see you there and get your vote!
OS Holiday Adopt-a-Family
As we approach Thanksgiving and the Holiday Season, we ask OSYFS for a family to adopt and provide for.

Help Support our participation in this Event here.

Scottish Rite/Freemasons 5K Road Race
This annual event is hosted by the Scottish Rite – Valley of Hartford and receives the bulk of revenue from Sponsors. While Estuary Lodge #43 is a sponsor, our members also help work this event on Race Day. This event is always the 4th Saturday in July! Click here for Race Registration and/or Sponsor forms.
Deep River Muster
We’ve been hosting our Annual Hot-dog Stand for over 30 with all proceeds going to fund our Scholarship Program. Unfortunately, dwindling numbers and lack of support at this event has caused us to end our participation. Perhaps we will try again in the future. If you wish to continue to support our Scholarship program, you can do so by making a donation here.
This event does not generate any revenue. It is Simply Fun and an Honor to take part in (even when it’s freezing outside.)
